European Union Support to capacitate MAIL in Transition for Sustainable Public Services Delivery

 Landell Mills is working closely with the Ministry of Agriculture, Irrigation, and Livestock (MAIL) in Afghanistan and relevant public, semi-public and private entities previously supported by EU-funded agricultural programmes.
